Motoring Research Logo By Gavin Braithwaite-Smith of Motoring Research | Slide 1 of 42: The general consensus seems to be that the Alpine A110 was the coolest new car of 2017. But for people of a certain age (i.e. us) the cars of the 1980s will always be cooler. We grabbed our parachute pants, permed our hair and stuck some Wham on the Sony Walkman before listing the coolest cars of the decade. We’ve tried to avoid the obvious, choosing to concentrate on some forgotten gems.
